    Ricciardo has become known for his trademark 'shoey' celebrations, in which he pours champagne into his shoe and downs the drink whenever he gets a place on the podium.

    Please observe the delight in Patrick Stewart's face.

    After downing his champagne and throwing his shoe into the crowd, Ricciardo then asked Patrick if he wanted some. And he was as stunned as us when the legendary actor replied: "I'd love some. Can I?"

    The Red Bull driver then immediately took his other shoe off and proceeded to pour in some champagne.

    Patrick then said cheers and downed it like a pro, not giving af that it was dribbling down his smart shirt.
